Circle Mirror Transformation
by Annie Baker
March 9 - April 8, 2012
What do a flirty former actress, a pouty 16-year-old, a hippie husband and a divorced carpenter have in common? Very little, or at least that’s what they think until they take a six week community acting class. In Annie Baker’s masterfully funny and poignant comedy, five ordinary yet quirky individuals come together to learn about acting and in the process find themselves transformed as they begin to see themselves and each other more clearly. As they play and act and interact through their summer of acting classes, these lovable and wounded characters are both hilariously funny and heartbreakingly real.
Circle Mirror Transformation is directed by Patrick Martyn, who is directing for FPCT for the first time. Patrick has directed productions for Vagabond Players, Axis Theater and Colonial Players of Annapolis. In addition, he has performed in many productions at FPCT over the last 20 years.
The cast includes Kelly Fuller, (Lauren) Larry Malkus, (Shultz) Lynda McClary, (Marty) Zarah Rautell, (Theresa) and Thom Sinn (James).
“absorbing, unblinking and sharply funny…”
